      No Planning for sightseeing. List of activities not followed. Driver less understand English/Hindi (But Driving was Fabulous), Also less knowledge. Many Place skipped. Travel Triangle Agent Surbhi Mathur not picked the call once. No assistance. High Price Tour for me.

    • Trip to Kerala

      Kerala always has been a good destination for couples who like to enjoy their private time. And this time it was no different. Except for the fact that we were able to take more time and spend time between each other rather than finding the Road and hotels because all that was done by Travel Triangle - Teamwork tour planner folks. They had meticulously planned the places and the driver was a wonderful guy who was perfect in all the areas- including talk, drive and suggesting the time to leave and come back. The arrangements were perfect with few glitches and I agree I am nitpicking here. The points that I am adding here are for improvement purposes. 1.We missed the breakfast every time because we wake up early and try to leave the hotel room at 7:30 AM. The breakfast starts at 8:30 and the resort staff packed Bread with butter for us. I guess it would be wise to start the breakfast at 7:00 and serve those who leave early. 2. Ervikulam national park is closed during this time of the year and we had expected to cover it. It was mentioned in the itinerary but we could not cover it 3. The driver we got was amazingly co-operative so we asked him if he wouldn't mind showing Kochi and few places on the way which are not included in the itinerary and he obliged. I guess not all the drivers are as friendly as him and agree as easily. So it would be good to add the kochi places to the itinerary and they are all pretty much coverable on the day we reach if we are able to reach Kochi before 8:00 Am. I am adding the best experience points here: 1. Boat house and the honeymoon inclusion with candle light dinner was exceptional and we liked the food quality and the ways and manners of the staff. 2. The seven springs resort is in a pristine place and is located at the right spot to enjoy the prefect weather of Munnar. 3. Driver was extremely good and I would definitely recommend him for all those who are travelling to Kerala. He was very good at timing and driving. 4.Places were perfectly planned and we had absolutely no issues with lunch and dinner. I am happy this time that I chose Travel Triangle and I am looking forward for another trip with them in a very short while . Thank you !

      Well Organized. I was very happy to see the House Boat, which very nice compared to any other around there. #shreekrishnahoudeboats thank u so much. Ajeesh from Southern Travels was very active. May be at some points he would have been a bit more quickl enough to cover some more places. Else, he was good, knew all the details of the places. If his health was fine we would have been more cheerful. 7Springs, lovely place to stay. All the facilities there are really nice. Tree house was more attractive and we missed it. Overall, arrangement was excellent and I would give all 5 starts to DisciverMyTravel for that. #discovermytravel and Specially Mr. Rishi away very active and did everything perfectly. Thanks to u man. Houseboat, Candlelight Dinner, 7Springs Resort.

    FAQ's of Kerala

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Sharing a houseboat or having one exclusively to yourself depends on the package you have taken. Share your requirements with the travel agent in advance to avoid last minute hassles.

    With most airlines imposing a 20 kg limit on baggage, one must make sure to not bring excess baggage. Sunscreen and mosquito repellant are a must have, apart from airy cotton apparels and comfortable footwear. Also make sure that you leave enough space inyour bags for taking back home souvenirs from the state.

    Some temples in Kerala do not allow photography of the idols and the temple premises. Also, Indian government prohibits photography of bridges and hydroelectric projects in the state

    During the off-season, hill stations like Munnar are cool enough to travel to. However, places such as Alleppey and Kumarakom are pretty hot for a visit. Monsoon season does not see a lot of tourists but the lush greenery all around will ensure tourists will have a great time.

    The off season in Kerala is from April to May, during which time it is too humid for comfort. The monsoon season here is from June to August.
